Hello everyone, happy Monday!

It's a bright and shiny new week and to kick it off it I'm craving soft, clean colours with lots of cool whites. On searching thorough 'making everyday beautiful' some of the regular contributors to the group did not let me down and I found this gorgeous collection of images creating just the soft summer palette I was looking for. Natural whites and their soft grey shadows creating a backdrop for sky blue, turquoise, warm pinks, a hint of peachy orange and all with delicate black detailing. So pretty!

I'm especially loving Silvia's beautifully gift wrapped boxes (giochi di carta), aren't they gorgeous!? If you would like to create your own pretty gift wrappings Silvia has written up a tutorial for the Italian blog Scrappinize magazine. The instructions are in Italian but not to worry if you don't read it, Silvia's images explain it all perfectly.

Emma, x
